reporter, grace lee, shows us it wasn't long before they were going head-to-head. >> there was a lot of movement. president obama had a lot of ground to make up and it appears that he did. 56% of california voters surveyed for our exclusive eyewitness news poll say the president was a clear winner tonight and part of the reason, they say the president was engaged and seemed better prepared than before. it was his performance that set the tone, but governor romney did not let him get away with it. >> very little of what romney said was true. >> we saw a more aggressive president out of the gate. a different mr. obama. >> you stood in front of a coal plant and pointed at it and said, this plant kills. and took great pride in shutting it down. now suddenly, you are a champion of coal. >> have you looked at your pension? >> i have to say.
>> mr. president, have you looked at your pension? >> you know, i don't look at my pension, it's not as big as yours, so it doesn't take as long. >> governor romney was prepared. >> my priority is jobbed. we can't afford four more years like the last four years. what i can do is it's more attracted to come to america. we don't have to live like this. we can get this economy going again. >> what was very different in round two, the tone was often con battive. >> i don't any anyone really believes that you're a person who is going to be pushing for oil and gas and coal. you'll get your chance in a moment. i'm still speaking. the answer is, i don't believe people think that's the case. that wasn't a question, that was a statement. you said in the rose garden the day after the attack, it was an act of terror. it was not a spontaneous demonstration. >> please proceed, governor. >> i want to make sure we get that for the record. it took the president 14 days
before he called the attack. >> he did in fact, sir, let me call it an act of terror. he did call it an act of terror. >> as expected, the moderator, cnn political reporter, candy crowley did not sit on the sidelines. >> i have to move you along. >> you got the first question, so i get the last answer on that one. >> in a followup, it doesn't work like that. i'm going to give you a chance. >> i understand mistakes, but i will get run out of town if i don't allow -- >> i just described to you how i do it with a single number that people can put and they can put their productions and credits. >> mr. president, we are keeping track, i promise you. >> we have to bring in our cbs 5 political analyst. we talk about the sparks flying. we talk about them being combative. did any of them go too far? >> i have to challenge scott
pelley. the politics have been evolving this way steadily. the ranker you see in san francisco or oakland where people are at each other's throats, you see reflected in campaigns as well. tonight, we saw the next step in the evolution of that. there was something that was a little undignified in some ways about seeing the governor tell the president to wait his turn. you are talking to the man who has the nuclear launch codes and saying wait your turn. this is a candidate speaking to the president of united states that can order the army into war. there is something surreal about that, but it is frankly the next evolutionary step in the kind of politics we have this this country. you saw that tonight. >> it's not okay. but i have to say, it's also, remember i said what we saw last week. that sort of got a lot of people feathers ruffled about
joe biden had been and paul ryan had been the victim. to tonight, the president and governor were doing this. it remains to be seen the people will think. there were undecided voters will sway. it remains to be seen. >> there were a couple of issues that we didn't hear about tonight. one of them was the 47th%. take a look now. >> i care about 100% of the american people. i want 100% of the american people to have a bright and prosperous future. >> i believe governor romney is a good man. when he said that 47% of the country considered themselves victims, who refuse personal responsibility? think about who he was talking about. >> a softball for the president? >> well that was the last question, which was the misrepresentation of yourself. romney said i care about 100% of the people. and finally, the president did
what people expected him to do two weeks ago, he reminded voters, almost ruthlessly about the 47% comment. saying who do you think he is talking about? this is his bid for those undecided voters that are sitting on the fence right now, not sure about this. reminding about people, this is what romney says in private. the people that support romney are going to do elected. the president had the last word tonight. i think that gave him an effective win in this. the same thing romney had that in the first debate. the polls are going to say the president won this debate. >> in that last word can be so important. thank you so much for joining us. for more campaign 2012 news and views, check out our presidential form. it's on every day the candidates weigh in on the matters that matter to you. i'm grace lee, cbs 5.

thomas pickerring recalled a story before stevens became ambassador. >> he was being trailed by the security men who are obviously very spitted tay other tourists. he reached over to one of the men, stole his cameras of the men that were following him. they were so dumbfounded that they had to loof. after a quick conversation, chris continues them to stand down. >> the family insists that stevens death not be politicized, but there are multiple investigations on how it happened, including questions about the security at the consulate. linda ye, cbs 5. we have developing news from the bay tonight. crews are trying to pull this overturned america's cup racing yacht back into port.

pitch pole. >> that's when the capsizes occur. >> at first, it didn't look that bad, most of the boat was still out of the water and in tact, as crews clung to the upside down poll. the wing, which stood 13 story st tall was under water. the waves snapped off the wing and chopped it into pieces. the hole got thrashed, at least seven miles out to see. >> i'm not sure what went wrong to be honest. we'll have to review the video. >> all of a sudden, it started to go over. did a pitch pole and wound up upside down. >> witnesses saw the flip, including the sailing team. >> there was a big commotion in the club. everyone was riled up.
